Acoustic jazz trio playing jazz standards.
Most of this recording was done at the Wood Shed performance space at the Woods House Conservatory in Wenatchee, Washington. The remainder of the tracks were recorded at Terrys Basement Studio and Daves living room.
Sixteen Strings At The Wood Shed was recorded using a digital hard drive recorder with Apogee A to D and D to A converters set at 24/96. An assortment of Neumann, CAD and PPA microphones were used with Class A microphone preamps from True Audio, Presonus and FMR direct into the recorder. Mastering was done through an older Amek analog console to an Alesis Master link at 24/88.2.
A reasonably well known guitar player who I had worked with, approached me about playing in my restaurant. I said Bud there are only 32 seats! I cant afford a band. Bud said well lets try a few weeks and see what happens. Eight years and two CDs later weve all enjoyed some of the best jazz around. Words cannot express the honor I feel to have shared the gift of their music and their friendship. I hope you enjoy this new CD as much as Ive enjoyed these guys. I hope they sell a million of them. - Steve Scott, Owner, The Alley Café.
